24"h X 24"W X 15"d Wall assemblage of Red Max.  I fell in love with this antique carnival wheel and had to have it. I then turned an old wooden 20" art doll into this bike riding character Red Max and took apart a vintage tricycle to make his vehicle. By the way, the top of his hat has a button that you can push to turn on and off the light inside. There was an art contest in Palm Springs recently where the theme was about the future of transportation in our City.  This is what I entered only to win Best in Show.  What a kick !!!!!

Pattern or design used: My own design - Lauretta Lowell
